pastedimageHurry! Get your Tickets to Steinbach Neighbours for Community’s production of Still Listening… Voices Among Us.

Last fall Steinbach Neighbours for Community brought the production called Listening for Grace by Ted & Co to Steinbach. Listening for Grace was a theatrical production presenting the thoughts and concerns of a father who learned that his son was gay. Our intention was to encourage conversations, starting in a safe neutral space, for respectful dialogue on the topic of sexual orientation.  This year  the conversation is continuing with a  with a local production.

Still Listening… Voices Among Us is a collection of stories from people living right here in our communities in Southeastern Manitoba. The stories represent a wide range of people who are part of the LGBTTQI* community. Some of the stories come from LGBTTQI* people, some from family, friends and allies of LGBTTQI*. Each story is a story from the heart, lived by each person who was willing to share their journeys.  Neighbours for Community understands that human sexuality is a complex topic and few people are comfortable talking about it, but as one of the participants said “doing nothing out of fear doesn’t change anything”.
